Their first "fight" was less exciting than most sparring sessions. Why would you want to see that again?I think PAC has unfinished business at 140 but I get that he’s now a welter. I wouldn’t mind a catchweight at 144.
I think PAC could easily make 140 if he wanted to and rehydration wouldn’t be an issue.
I for one would like to see this fight the more I think about it.
PAC/Mayweather 2 is a pipe dream..
How long ago was the Algieri fight? Pacquiao is far too old, imo, to be draining. I don't think he'd be able to make 140 at this stage in his career. But if Pacquiao comes in hydrated and good, he stops Lomachenko.Pac too big too fast too strong. If Linares can put Loma on his ass then Pac then turn his lights off.
Plus i doubt he would be weight drained, he had no problems making weight against Algieri.
Pac Algieri was about 5 years ago. Still Loma has been taking clean punches from Linares and Campbell and Pac is a far superior fighter than those two, not to mention more awkward.How long ago was the Algieri fight?

I agree. Loma is just on another level speed and skill-wise that Pac has not seen since at least Mayweather.Pac hasn't fought a smaller, faster, more skilled fighter for a long time. There's a big difference between the Thurman's of the world and Lomachenko. I want to see it just for the name factor, I have no doubt that it looks similar to Pac-DLH (Loma being Pac) but I understand why Lomachenko and his team aren't interested. They should just take it for the pay check and to end Pac while some people still think he is the same fighter he used to be. At the same time it doesn't move them towards unification and beating the best available today. If they fought then everyone would just say he beat a shell of Pac in retrospect, so Lomachenko isn't going to be motivated by that 'challenge', and we know he doesn't fight for fame or money. It's about legacy, and no one gets credit for beating up old names.
